      WASHINGTON — Ever since 1981, when Ronald Reagan sat outside his California ranch and signed a tax-reform law that reversed half a century of mostly climbing rates, the pursuit of ever-lower income tax brackets has been the prime goal of Republican economic policy.

      Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio has proposed a tax plan that puts less emphasis on lowering the top tax rate and instead offers a large new credit for families with children, which he says would help working households. The plan, the first substantial tax proposal of the 2016 presidential campaign, already has generated debate within Republican policy circles. [Getty Images]
